"I hope so, but it definitively, positively , absolutely wont look anything like that concept art illustration. "
I remember the good old days of playing Journey on my dad's Atari 2600. The graphics were amazing.... at the time. lol :) Cool-looking concept of art of XBOX 720 console and controller.
Never stop learning... until you're dead.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
Good news indeed as Developers are IMO held back by consoles and PC gamers suffer. I like the idea what DICE did with Battlefield 3 which was according to them build for the PC and ported to consoles but often not I think it is the other way around.
As a former skater I understood the whole 360 and now 720 naming scheme but what comes after a 720??? Just something to think about.....
@ omegadoom13 I remember it vividly the good old 2600 I remember playing the ping pong game with the turn dial control. How about Frogger or they had a drag racing game I used to enjoy.
-_- its not called the xbox 720... i dont understand why people think will be called 720. the 360 was called 360 because you get a full 360° of entertainment and 720 is two 360s so how the hell does that make sense in your brain that it will be 720?
thunderbird:As a former skater I understood the whole 360 and now 720 naming scheme but what comes after a 720???
900, and then after that 1080.
I don't know if the rumor will come true. I mean the logic behind it is reasonable but to announce it at E3 they would have to been working on it for 2-3 years; and I doubt that they would be left in the dust by a Nintendo console that's more powerful then the Xbox 360 and will probably sell more then the 360 and PS3 combined.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I'm dubious of this announcement. MS is pushing the idea that it's firmly focused on Kinect and the XBox 360. Giving the fact that hardware hasn't apparently been finalized, a new console is still probably at least two years away. It wouldn't be surprising if MS unveiled a proof-of-concept prototype in 2012, but took a year to actually start shipping anything.
Personally, I'm still thinking three years--but we'll see.
"You are right, though three years maybe too much, but then again, how much profit are Sony and Microsoft making from their units, as compared to many years ago when they launched?
Enough to keep them floating. I mean the games that are still being released on the systems still look good despite being on 6-year old hardware.
Why would they skip the X-Box 420!
Absolutely right, Optimus. I mean,l where's the Kinect eye... to watch what brands are on your T-Shirt and target you with specifically related advertisements?
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I have to agree with you Joel I would think we would have heard rumors of this by now and I doubt Microsoft would have let Nintendo steal the show as much as they did this year.
LOL wow, real unique name :). If it looks anything like the picture up there, it isn't nice at all. it looks all future like, but it isn't nice to the eye :).
The first XBox's had defective DVD drives... after nearly 2 years...
Then the 360's had the red ring of death... after nearly 2 years...
I'm guessing the 720 will accidentally set your breaker box on fire, but not until 2 years after you buy it.
I'm skipping this one.
Well, the concept looks cool....but im a PC gamer through and through. Part of the fun for me is building the computer and buying parts for the best performance for the price. Course i still have an Xbox 360, got it for free. It was RROD'd and i fixed it. The nice thing about consoles is that you can tweak the software to run more efficiently on them so that more taxing games on PC's run fluidly on consoles. But, they arent my cup of tea.
Rumors of the successor to the XBOX 360 being revealed at E3 2012? E3 just finished a few days ago and already rumors for the next are flying around the web. Really wish we could enjoy the present taking simple delight in the moment; no chance of that though in this we need it now society.
"I have the power!!"
hopefully this thing runs on DX11 and not DX9. Im guessing PS will have another unit in the works also.
i hope they integrate multiple outputs and maybe even more than a maximum of 4 people to one console. probably not, you gotta pay to play.

If I remember what I read about correctly, not until 2013 at least.
I almost definitely will at least support DX10.1 since the Wii U is based on the AMD R700. Im not really concerned about horse power on the new consoles. If Nintendo is going high power, you know microsoft and sony wont slump.
